There are many food stalls in Jakarta. It would be fair to say that wherever there are people, there are always food stalls. Here, food stalls are called kaki lima. There are so many kinds of food sold at kaki lima that it is difficult to answer the question of what kind of food can be eaten at a food stall in Jakarta in one word. In addition to nasi goreng, nasi campur, and mie goreng, which are also major in Japan, various dishes are sold at each stall, such as grilled skewers called satay and murtabak, a kind of pan-fried bread.
A kaki lima was parked at the end of the street I was walking on. There are many food stalls in Jakarta that open in the middle of the day, but the owner of this stall seemed to be the type that starts working at night. I could see plates and other things inside the stall, but it was not open for business yet. The stalls parked along the wall of the building seemed to be quietly waiting for their turn to open.
The stall was not open, so naturally there were no customers. But there were two boys playing around it. They were peeking around the back of the stall. It was as if they were looking for something.
